Hear what educators are saying…


I noticed my 5th grade students really did not grasp what was included in a complete sentence. A few days of working through this and they have fully mastered it. Thank you!

This is an excellent resource. Used in 1:1 sessions with students who struggle with writing. Excellent tool and activities.

Another great resource! I used this resource to begin to teach my students sentence structure. The resource really broke down what a sentence is. There are various levels to meet all of my students abilities. My students had an easy time navigating and using this product remotely. They loved this product so much they asked to use it again! I also found it helpful to have the directions of each section at the beginning of the section so I knew when I could put the presentation into present mode. When asking the students to write their own sentences, the resource had very engaging and detail-fulled pictures. There was even an area where the students could upload their own image to write about! Highly recommend this resource.
